Fwd: Transforming Assessment Webinars - nuance in written and audio feedback 4 Apr 2018 [JISCmail]

1) Recording available: "Unlocking the code to digital literacy - implications for learning and assessment" held 1 Aug 2018.
Presenter: Associate Professor Jo Coldwell-Neilson (Deakin University, Australia)
In this session Jo will argued for an updated definition and understanding of digital literacy that encapsulates the broader, ubiquitous nature of digital technologies, together with the elements that underpin the understanding. This provides a framework to scaffold and contextualise digital literacy learning through the curriculum and inform assessment practices to ensure our graduates are prepared for a digitally enhanced workplace.
